Flexible packaging converter Accredo Packaging Inc. has received a 2013 Green Power Leadership Award from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

EPA presented Accredo officials with the award Sept. 23 at the 2013 Renewable Energy Markets Conference in Austin, Texas.

The annual awards recognize the country’s leading purchasers of “green” power, generated by wind, solar, geothermal, biogas, biomass and hydro-electric. Accredo Packaging in Sugar Land, Texas, buys its green power from TXU Energy

Accredo was one of eight organizations nationwide to receive a Leadership Award for its green power purchases. According to EPA, Accredo is buying nearly 21 million kilowatt hours of green power annually, equivalent to avoiding the carbon dioxide emissions of more than 3,000 passenger cars in a year. It is enough electricity to power 2,000 American homes annually, EPA said.
